About this funder:



At the Key Biscayne Community Foundation, we strive for our grants to create real and lasting impact within the local and greater community. By creating an impact everyone can feel, KBCF is dedicated to making and facilitating change in Miami-Dade County, elsewhere in the U.S., and around the world. Through our discretionary grants, as well as the donor recommended grants, we have provided grants for everything from art programs for children hospitalized with cancer to healthy aging opportunities for seniors, and from disaster relief for Haiti post-earthquake to the Key Biscayne Citizen Scientist Program. The goal of the Key Biscayne Community Foundation is to use evidence-based programming to extend the reach of residents on the Key to the greater community, creating a lasting impact on families in need, and the environment.

KBCF Impact Goals Include:

  • Create change in the way community problems are addressed and solutions are implemented.
  • Respond to emerging or changing needs through the provision of services or programs.
  • Strengthen the capabilities of nonprofit agencies both in the delivery of programs and in organizational management, so that the unmet needs of our communities can be filled.

With our numerous philanthropic partners, KBCF supports nonprofit organizations and public institutions in fields such as the environment, science & technology, the arts, civic engagement, education, health & human services, and other areas of need as diverse as our region itself.
